For Immediate Release

Morgan Township

The Butler County Engineer's Office will begin a series of culvert replacements on California Road in Morgan Township beginning Monday, May 16, 2005. A total of ten culverts will be replaced with work on each culvert lasting approximately one to three weeks. The culvert replacements will be performed in succession from south to north and will occur one at a time, not simultaneously. The first three culverts are in the general area of Schoenling Road and the remaining seven culverts are located north of Okeana Drewersburg Road. Click here for a printable map of the approximate locations and project order of all ten culvert replacements. Work on the final culvert is tentatively slated to be completed by mid- to late August 2005.

Each culvert project will require closing the road at that location. During these closures local access will be maintained from either the north or south side of each culvert project. While official detours will be posted for all through traffic, it is anticipated that local residents and motorists will find the routes that work best for them.

These projects are necessary to replace aging and deteriorating structures in an effort to prevent potential future structural failure and maintain proper drainage and water flow. It is also necessary to address these culverts now prior to a full resurfacing of California Road late this summer or early fall. All ten culvert replacements are being performed exclusively by crews from the Butler County Engineer's Office. Funding for the projects consists of 100 percent local BCEO Force Account money.

First Culvert Closing May 16

The first culvert closure will begin Monday, May 16, 2005 and is located 300 feet north of the Hamilton County line, or 0.4 mile north of Lee's Creek Road in Hamilton County, and 300 feet south of Schoenling Road. Work on this culvert is tentatively scheduled for completion the week of May 30, 2005 at which time crews will move north to the next culvert.
